PREFATORY NOTE 

This index undertakes to deal only with the printed reports of administrative 
officers, legislative committees, and special commissions of the states and with governors' 
messages for the period since 1789. It does not refer to constitutions, laws, legislative 
proceedings or court decisions, except in so far as they happen to be found in the class 
of documents above mentioned. It attempts, on the other hand, to furnish a list, as 
complete as possible, of all the documents and messages which fall within its scope, in 
whatever form they may have been published, whether separately, in collected docu- 
ments, legislative journals, proceedings and documents of constitutional conventions or 
volumes of laws, and to indicate the volume in which they may be found. Unless other- 
wise indicated the material indexed is in the New York Public Library. In some cases 
reference is made to reports and messages prior to 1789, and to publications other than 
public documents which it was felt would be helpful to those likely to use the index but 
no claim to completeness is made except in the case of the documents and messages since 
1789. In addition to furnishing a list of reports and messages, the index undertakes to 
supply a reference by volume and page to all material of economic importance which they 
contain, with the exception of that contained in the reports of bureaus of labor. The 
reason for this exception is that these reports have already been indexed by Carroll D. 
Wright, late United States Commissioner of Labor, 1 in a volume published by the 
Department of Labor in 1902. Although the index is confined to matter of economic 
bearing, the term " economic " has been given a broad interpretation. In view of this 
liberal interpretation it is believed that the index will constitute a useful addition to 
the resources of students of almost any aspect of American history. 

It will be seen that the present index differs both in scope and character from 
R. R. Bowker's " State Publications," the valuable pioneer work in this field. It is 
narrower in scope than " State Publications " which aims to present a list not only of 
reports and governors' messages but of all state documents; but in the field which the 
present work covers it contains not only a more complete list of documents than has 
hitherto been published but also an index of their contents in so far as these have an 
economic bearing. 

Each volume is divided into two parts. Part I contains references to general 
sources of information and descriptive matter found in the documents and to general 
indexes and other reference material relating to N". Y. state documents. Part II con- 
tains references to particular series of i;eports, and particular topics, arranged alpha- 
betically by topics. The references under each topic are divided into two groups, viz., 

'Index of all reports issued by bureaus of labor statistics In the U. 8. prior to Mch. 1, 1902. Wash., 1902. 
287 pp. 8. 



4 PREFATORY NOTE 

" serial " and " non-serial." Within each of these divisions the arrangement is chrono- 
logical. Anyone desiring information on any particular topic will, therefore, look for 
that topic in its alphabetical order in Part II. Numerous cross-references will, it is 
hoped, make it possible to discover with little difficulty all the material bearing on that 
topic. 

Uniform entry words for subjects recurring in different states will be retained 
throughout the series. It will thus be possible to make a study not only of the historical 
development of an economic subject as reflected in the documents of an individual state 
but also to make a comparative study of that development as it has taken place in the 
country at large. To accomplish this purpose it has been necessary to make the selec- 
tion of entry words without reference to the peculiarities of local usage, such peculi- 
arities being recognized in the case of each state by cross-references. Unless otherwise 
stated the size of the books is octavo. It is believed that the abbreviations used are 
sufficiently obvious, or familiar, not to make a table of them necessary. 

The present volume is confined to the economic material contained in the printed 
reports of administrative officers, legislative committees and special commissions of the 
State of New York and in the messages of the governors of that state. This volume 
has been preceded by similar volumes devoted to the states of Maine, New Hampshire, 
and Vermont, and will be followed by similar volumes devoted to other states. The 
work when completed, will, therefore, furnish an index to the economic material in the 
reports and governors' messages of all the states of the Union. 

A feature introduced in the New York part of this index, and not employed in 
any of the preceding parts, is the system of references to topic from locality. This 
feature will be retained in succeeding parts. The advantage, particularly in a state 
as great, both geographically and economically, as New York, is obvious. By locality 
is meant any one of the political or natural divisions of the state, as county, town or 
city, see for instance New York City, and rivers, lakes, etc., see for instance Hudson 
River. References from the names of foreign countries have also been made where 
mention has been found of any phase of the economic activities of such countries, see 
for instance Austria. 



COLLECTED DOCUMENTS. 



Although it is certain that no collected documents were made up into volumes prior to those four volumes of 
1830 entitled Legislative Documents, earlier numbered Senate and Assembly Documents are found. The Journals 
up to and including 1829 are folio volumes, and from 1820, contain, in the body of the text as well as in the appen- 
dices, those reports later found in the documents. No evidence has been found that the documents contained in the 
appendices to the folio journals, although these are in most cases lettered or numbered consecutively, were sepa- 
rately printed in folio. In a few instances, noted in their proper places in the body of this index, octavo reprints of 
a folio appendix were made. In 1829 the documents were for the first time authorized to be issued In octavo form. 
This change was made pursuant to Senate resolution of April 25, 1829 (Sen. Jol. Jan. 1829: 616), which provided that 
during the remainder of that session governor's messages, reports, and other communications made to the Senate or 
Assembly should be printed in octavo form. Unless otherwise ordered the " usual " number, i. e. 500 copies, were BO 
printed. The journals, which heretofore had been folio volumes, were also issued in octavo form in 1830 and ever 
after, excepting an occasional quarto issue. The collation given below of the collected documents does not show extra 
or special sessions of the legislature. Proceedings of such sessions are, as a rule, contained in the journals of the 
next preceding regular session. The following list is intended to be of volumes not sessions. 

The serial numbers assigned to the following volumes begin with No. 28. Numbers 1 to 27 are for the Senate and 
Assembly journals of the first twelve sessions after assumption of statehood. These sessions covering the years 
from 1777 to March, 1789, antedate the period covered by this index. One number has been allowed for each journal 
having a title page. Sometimes journals may be found bound together in one volume, in which case librarians may 
affix to the volume the serial numbers required for each journal. 

These serial numbers are an arbitrary assignment on the part of the compiler and are intended to serve the same 
purpose which make the serial numbers applied to federal documents useful to librarians. 

The collected documents of New York State vary from those of most other states in that they carry an index to 
all the volumes of a session in each volume of the Assembly and Senate documents respectively. This index first 
appeared in 1841. There is no table of contents of the volumes at any time.

LEGISLATIVE MANUALS 

Civil List 

The New York Civil List, containing the names and origin 
of the civil divisions and the names and dates of elec- 
tion or appointment of the principal state and county 
officers, from the Revolution to the present time. Com- 
piled from the public records in the office of the secre- 
tary of state, and other authentic sources. Albany, 
1855-1889. 

1855 was first Issue. Prom 1855 to 1863 list was 
compiled by Franklin B. Houwh, corresponding 
member of New York Historical Society. Prom 
1864 to 1882 compiled by Stephen C. Hutching 
and from 1883 to 1888 by Edgar A. Werner. 
Issued annually. The matter usually contained In 
the lists Is an account of the forms of govt. of 
the colony and state, with notes on various gov- 
ernmental organizations, lists of principal colonial, 
state, and county officers ; and electoral statis- 
tics, the whole arranged In constitutional periods. 
Among the more Important of the Improvements

Judicial systems of the colony and state; list of 
residents of New York State who held positions 
under the federal sovt., and the addition of a dept.

Manual for the Use of the Legislature 

Manual for the use of the legislature of New York, 1816- 
1904. Albany, 1816-1904. 24, 16, and 8. 

This manual is not to be confounded with two similar 

gubllcatlons, backtltled Rules and Orders and 
ed Book resp., of which copies were Issued during 
the decade of the thirties. Although the publisher 
was the same In both cases, It Is not believed that 
the Rules and Orders or the Red Book were strictly 
official. The collation of the series of the Manual 
as given In Bowker and which was supplied by 
the State Library begins with 182B. There Is a 
copy for 1816, compiled by A. Clark, as was also 
the Issue for 1826, In The New York Public 
Library. There were no Intervening Issues. 
The manual for 1826 Is called on the title page 
" second edition." viz. second edition of the 
manual of 1816. The manual contains. In 
addition to copies of the state and federal con- 
stitution, lists of committee. Senate and Assem- 
bly rules, etc., and banking, finance. Insurance and 
canal statistics. In later years the directories of 
department officials and the statistics referred to 
are quite full. The statistical matter has been 
Indexed In Its proper places In part 2 of this 
volume.

American Institute 

Annual Report 

Incorporated May 2, 1829. Under act of May 5, 1841, 
" to promote agriculture," the Institute became a 
state beneficiary. New York co. was excepted from 
apprns. made under that act to tbe state socy. 
and to tbe counties, and Its apprn. was made over 
to tbe Institute. The Institute thus measurably 
took the place of the N. Y. co. agric. socy. From 
1841 the Institute maintained an open exhibition 
of models, etc., of Improvements In mnftures., 
agriculture and the arts.

lation, discounts, specie, deposits, etc., of the differ- 
ent banks and banking companies as were submitted

by one passed April 20, 1825, directing the governor 
and Senate to appoint two freeholder! to act with 
any one of the canal commissioners as appraisers. 
By an act passed May 10, 1836. three appraisers

for a term of two years. The bd. remained thus 
constituted until 1857 when their term was ex-
